Calling All Artists! EGGstravaganza 2019

EGGstravaganza was conceived in 2014 as a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Village. Because of its wild popularity it will be celebrated again in 2019, the Village’s 55th anniversary. EGGstravaganza serves as a community awareness and fundraising vehicle for the Public Arts Initiative of Egg Harbor, Inc. and the Egg Harbor Business Association. Egg forms, supplied by the committee, will be transformed by thirty participating artists and displayed in Egg Harbor during the 2019 summer season. Upon conclusion of the exhibit, the art will be sold at a live auction with the proceeds equally benefiting the artists and future public art projects in the Village.
